What We Ate, Feb. 4 - 10

Last week was a busy one for us, and it shows in our menus.  I went for quick and easy several nights in a row.

It can be a challenge to put a nutritious meal on the table when you're on the run.  I'm very grateful for jars on the pantry shelf and pre-cooked dishes from the freezer.

I'm also grateful for steak, which is fast to cook and oh-so-tasty.  We had a steak dinner mid-week; a big treat for both of us.

Here's what we ate last week.
